The Contradictions Among Dr. Talbot's Disciples and the "Scholarly Consensus" of Daniel 12:1-13/Matthew 13:39-43

No one can deny that Full Preterism is the organic development (“Reformed and always reforming”) of the reformed orthodox church as it pertains to the time and nature of fulfillment for the judgment and resurrection of Dan. 12:1-4, 7, 13/Matt. 13:39-43 to take place.  These texts would be fulfilled at the end of the “last days” or “end of the…

The Living Body Show 10/22/12 Re: The Criswell Millennial Conf. Review Part 2 Gentry's Inability to Develop Daniel 12:2-3 in the NT

I was disappointed that at the Criswell conference on the millennium of Revelation 20 that Kenneth Gentry did not address the texts and argument/main point to my public question. My question was that since he now believes the resurrection of Daniel 12:2 was fulfilled spiritually, covenantally and corporately in AD 70, he now needs to address HOW (not shouting) the…

The Living Body Show 10/15/12 Re: Criswell Millennial Conf. Review Part 1 G.K. Beale's "Thorny Problem" in Matt. 24-25=1 Thess. 4-5

If it is “orthodox” to believe the following: 1)   The resurrection and glorification of the Church in Daniel 12:2-3 happened in AD 70 – corporately, covenantally and Daniel was raised out of Abraham’s Bosom or Hades into God’s presence at that time and according to Revelation 20 (Partial Preterism). 2)  The end of the age in Matthew 13:39-43 and Matthew…

G.K. Beale and D.A. Carson's "Thorny Problem" In Matthew 24-25/1 Thessalonians 4:15–5:11

G.K. Beale and D.A. Carson’s “Thorny Problem”  In Matthew 24-25/1Thessalonians 4:15—5:11 By Michael J. Sullivan My proposition in this article is to prove that Beale and Carson’s “thorny problem” concerning their contradictory teachings and or associations in their writings of Matthew 24:30-31/1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 over the years is solved with the Full Preterist interpretation of these passages. D.A Carson wrote…

Philippians 3 – Question/Challenge on What Death/Resurrection is in View

Anti-preterism: why did Paul claim his hope was to attain the resurrection of the dead [Phil. 3:11], if the “death” to be overcome was purely a relational issue with God.  Had Paul’s relationship with God not been restored?  Are we to believe the man who wrote the majority of the N.T. had not been “raised”? Response: To reduce the biblical-preterist…

Critiquing Joel McDurmon Part 2: Abraham and The Land/City/World (New Exodus) Promises Fulfilled or Not Fulfilled?

 By Michael J. Sullivan In this article I want to address two issues.  First, is Joel McDurmon asserting in his debate with Don Preston that Abraham did not inherit the land promise and if we say that he did, then according to Acts 7 – the Bible contradicts itself.  According to McDurmon if Abraham didn’t inherit the land or the…

Death being the wages of sin, why are not the righteous delivered from death, seeing all their sins are forgiven in Christ? A. The righteous shall be delivered from death itself at…

Div. www.eschatology.org In the McDurmon -V- Preston debate, July 19-21, 2012, Joel McDurmon clearly anticipated that I would appeal to Luke 21:22 where Jesus, describing the impending destruction of Jerusalem, said “These be the days of vengeance, in which all things that are written must be fulfilled.” McDurmon, it seems, thought…
